Emergency care in your handbag

Is the skin on your hands needing some urgent emergency care?

We put the skin on our hands through a lot of damage and stress throughout our daily lives – using harsh hand washes, drying on paper towels, at work, in and out of cold and warm temperatures not to mention the havoc central heating plays on our skin.

A handbag must is the portable handy sized hand cream – give your hands some TLC on-the-go, in the office or waiting at the school gates. You don’t need to break the bank to indulge in some extra moisture and hydration for your worked hands. Here are our top picks:


  1. L’Occitane Shea Butter Lotion Hand Cream – the ultimate in award winning handcare, much-loved brand L’Occitane from the Provenance area of France offers this luxurious shea butter cream that has a cult following. Beautifully rich and nourishing, this kind lotion gently sinks into the skin leaving it smooth and soft. Produced in a handy handbag sized tube of 8ml or larger 150ml size this is definitely value of money – you’ll be hooked forever.


2. Clarins Hand and Nail Treatment Cream – You’ll only need a smudge of this light and non-greasy treatment to work into hands, fingers and nails for an all over treat. Some hand creams have overpowering scents but not this one – a light fragrance lingers on the skin even hours after application. Clarins have developed one of the best on the market as it is quickly absorbed by the skin and helps to minimise those dreaded age spots and strengthens nails. Keep in your make-up bag for on-the-go emergencies. What else do you need?



3. Clinique Deep Comfort Hand and Cuticle Cream – Pamper your irritated hands this winter with Clinique’s extra special hand cream. Proudly 100% perfume-free, this cream is ideal for those who suffer with sensitive skin or dermatological complaints. Claiming to hydrate for up to 12 hours, the smooth yet silky formula soothes and helps the skin to retain moisture. Nails are not left behind as this Clinique blend can leave them super shiny and glowy – just massage in around the nail bed and cuticles for that extra nourishment.
